Blogging the Qur’an

Robert Spencer, whose books The Truth About Muhammad: Founder of the World’s Most Intolerant Religion and The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Islam (and the Crusades) I mentioned here will be analyzing the Koran every Sunday at the Hot Air blog.
Here’s the link:
Mr. Spencer describes his plan this way:
So over the course of the next few months, I’m going to read it, and discuss it in a series of columns. All of it. Not “cherry-picked” or “out of context.” The whole thing, beginning to end. Some of you may be familiar with David Plotz’s series on Slate, “Blogging the Bible.” This series will be similar to that one, but rather than just write about what I think or feel about a certain passage, I will, unlike Plotz, refer to commentaries – all Muslim ones – on the Qur’an. I’ll try to explain how mainstream Muslims who study the Qur’an will understand any given passage, and what its import might be for non-Muslims.
His first post explains what he’s going to do, and why it’s especially important to be familiar with the Koran.
